So, I went here on the advice of a co-worker who raved about how cool this place is. I thought it was OK. It's $15 to get in and a few dollars more if you want to see a couple of the special movies. The aquariums are pretty cool. My girlfriend was kind of blown away at the sight of the huge catfish and sturgeon. There is also a saltwater tank that had some rays, tarpon, a moray eel, baby hammerhead shark, etc.
There is lots to see and there were a LOT of kids. I'd say it's pretty kid friendly with some stuff just for the kids.
In the end, I gave the experienc a grade of a "B", my girlfriend gave it a "C". We both agreed that it was worth the drive and much better that sitting at home on a sunny February day.
